Family fun at Glenbrook for Australia Day celebrations

It was hot and humid, but that didn't stop the crowds rolling in for Australia Day celebrations at Glenbrook Park on Sunday.

This year, all profits from the Lower Blue Mountains Rotary organised event were donated to Rotary's bushfire appeal, with volunteers collecting gold coin donations as people entered the park.

There was plenty for kids to do with children's activities including face painting and craft, novelty rides, exploring a fire truck, and sampling food from the many food stalls.

The Australia Day Gnome Convention was as popular as ever, with people marvelling at the multitude of colourful gnomes on display.

Over in the entertainment tent, activities began with a flag raising ceremony featuring the Hazelbrook, Lawson and Mt Riverview Girl Guides. The program included Scottish dancing, singer Matthew Avery and the Blue Mugs - the Blue Mountains Ukulele Group. The official Australia Day address was provided by Australian showbiz personality Warren Kermond.
